President Joe Biden’s nominee to lead the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency was confirmed by the United States Senate in a 50-47 vote. John Binder Excerpt: Tuscon, Arizona, Police Chief Chris Magnus was confirmed on Tuesday evening with all Senate Democrats supporting his nomination as well as Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME). Sens. Tom Cotton (R-AR), James Lankford (R-OK), and Patrick Leahy (D-VT) did not vote. Magnus, as Breitbart News reported, has a record of supporting sanctuary city policies, attacking the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency for enforcing federal immigration law, praising Black Lives Matter protests, and blasting former President Trump for increasing interior immigration enforcement. In one specific case, Magnus privately defended sanctuary city policies in the wake of 32-year-old Kate Steinle’s killing. Steinle was killed by a seven-time felon, five-time deported illegal alien Jose Garcia Zarate. In 2015, at the time of Steinle’s killing, ICE requested that the San Fransisco Sheriff’s Office turn Zarate over to them for arrest and deportation. The request was ignored because of the office’s sanctuary policy and Zarate was released from local police custody.
